Training Courses — Health and Physical Literacy

A trio of women smile and laugh at a conference.

High quality movement in early childhood is essential for laying the foundations of physical activity, health, well-being and academic outcomes.

Following extensive research into professional development approaches, we have developed robust evidence-based training courses.

These are tailored for different early years practitioners and support an in-depth understanding of what high quality movement is and how to support this in early childhood.

This work supports the implementation of SKIP-Cymru (Successful Kinaesthetic Instruction for Pre-schoolers), which is recognised as a recommendation for all foundation-phase pupils in Wales in the Health and Social Care Committee review for the Welsh Government on physical activity. This work is also recognised as a case study for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in the Well-Being of Future Generations Act support materials 'A Journey to a Healthier Wales'.
